    The Hawley Record, compiled and published by Elias Sill Hawley, 1890
    Genealogical Note 17, page 450
    DEACON THOMAS HAWLEY No 17, son of Samuel, Sen, married widow Joanna Sherwood, and daughter of Ephraim Boothe, in 1701. They were second cousins. This marriage was erroneously recorded on the town records 1721, whereas in 1715, six years earlier, Joanna signs a document as widow of Sherwood and wife of Hawley. In 1712, also (vol ii., p 199), Land Records, Joanna styles herself wife of Thomas Hawley. John Sherwood, of Fairfield, her first husband, died before 1796 (sic, s/b 1696?), when the inventory of his estate was taken, and as she was in 1701 only 23 years of age, and was certainly Thomas Hawley's first wife, the date of the marriage was 1701.

    Thomas Hawley joined the Stratfield, now Bridgeport church, by letter from Stratford, in 1699; was chosen Deacon of the same in 1712; died in 1722, and was buried in the old Stratfield burying-ground.

    Like his grandfather, father and brothers, he was a large land-holder.
